Most of my students have plotted points before, but the basics often escape them! I give this to students prior to instruction to see what they can do. It's a great way to quickly see what they already know, and give gentle reminders about the axes, quadrants, and that the order matters when plotting points... not to mention, when numbering axes, the number represents the hash mark, not the space between hash marks! Ahh, the little things! :-)
At a glance, you will be able to see who "gets it" and who needs a little extra help (problem #2 provides a clever way to spot check the class quite simply!) For those who already understand the basics, the back of this sheet provides some thought-provoking extension problems. This resource has something for everyone - enjoy!
